Battle Hymn of the Republic, Tribute to Athletics, Skyview High School
I was going to participate in football my sophomore year at Sky View, but I had broken my arm the summer before playing baseball. I was too shy to call the coach and explain what had happened and why I was missing practice. I showed up to school the first day, and had seventh period athletics, but was asked to transfer out by the coach. Who needed someone in athletics with a big cast on his arm. That is how I got into Spanish as an alternative, which was pretty fun. After I got my cast off, I tried out for wrestling. It was harder not having seventh period, as everyday I showed up late and then had to catch up as best I could. I didn't have the stamina or whatever I needed to continue at that pace, and thus ended my athletic career at Sky View. I never got back into it after that one halfhearted attempt. However I admire those who had the gumption, and the talent, to stick to it.
